Frances in the Country

by Liz Garton Scanlon, illustrated by Sean Qualls. Frances is a city kid and sometimes the noise and concrete can feel so confining. Frances finds it hard to follow city rules:  “Look out! Hush…Come back right this minute!” But, when she visits her cousins in the country, she has space to run and play. There are animals to visit, cats to chase, and hayrides to take. Plus, some time away from home gives Frances a chance to appreciate the things she does like about the city, like bright lights, street music, and most of all, being with her mom and sister.
